I made this for a Caribbean themed dinner party. I followed as directed, except I used fresh pound cake instead of frozen, and omitted the macadamia nuts. It is very good--has an ambrosia-like flavor to it and is not too sweet.

Delish! Everyone loved. I did this for a baby shower so I used Pina Colada mix instead of Rum and it was a good substitue.
